Rise of the Rest

Rise of the Rest is a road show and seed fund founded by AOL founder Steve Case and managed by Revolution.

Revolution’s Rise of the Rest Road Trip with Steve Case is a nationwide effort to work closely with entrepreneurs in emerging startup ecosystems. Their view is that this is the beginning of a new era for entrepreneurship across the U.S. — high-growth companies can now start and scale anywhere, not just in a few coastal cities. On each bus tour, they visit five cities in five days and invest at least $500,000 in local startups through pitch competitions. Throughout the day they also visit the fastest growing local startups, hear directly from innovators, spend time learning from local policy and business leaders.1

Rise of the Rest makes a minimum of 20 investments a year.
